Abilene State Park – Texas

Things to Do



  • Camping is good
  • Large lake for fishing and kayaking
  • Swimming pool available


  • Not enough hiking and biking trails
  • A lot of dead trees in the campground


Abilene State Park is located about 19 miles south of Abilene, Texas and about 5 miles south of Buffalo Gap, Texas off of highway 89.


The park has several camping areas which include Brushy Trail, Oak Grove, Pecan Grove and Wagon Wheel.

Our favorite area to camp in is Brushy Trail. The sites are equipped with a picnic table, fire ring, 30 & 50 amp electrical hookups and water. There are no sewer hookups in this area. In fact, there are only 8 sites in the whole park that have sewer hookups and those are pretty hard to come by.

All of the campground areas are pretty spacious to give you some privacy. There are a lot of trees that provide plenty of shade however dead trees and brush need to be cleared out to help make the area pretty.

The pad sites in each area are pretty level so you don't have to use too many blocks to level your RV.

In addition to RV or tent camping, yurts are available for rent. There are a total of 8 yurts. They can be rented individually or for a group.

Things to do

There are a lot of things to do at Abilene State Park such as kayaking, canoeing and fishing at Lake Abilene. You can also fish at the pond located inside the park. Swimming is also available. There is a swimming pool on site that provides lots of fun for kids and families during the summer months.


Although Abilene State Park is not our favorite park it is still a good park to camp. There is plenty to do and a great place to relax and enjoy being outdoors. Two reasons it is not our favorite park is there are a lot of dead trees and not enough trails for hiking and biking. Other than that, we like it.
